The Action Storybook Bible Giveaway

We love having the freedom to provide numerous avenues for our children to learn God’s word. Obviously, we want them to grow to read and love the Bible. But it is so helpful when you have young or struggling readers to have alternate styles that are attention grabbing and appealing. So when I had the opportunity to review the new Action Storybook Bible, I wanted in!

The graphics in this storybook Bible are amazing! Reminiscent of all those great comics that have become crazy popular movies – this storybook will grab the attention of even the most reluctant reader. What I really love is at the end of each chapter, there is a wrap-up page that helps parents to walk their young children through each story and how to apply it to their lives.

Our Homeschool Plans 2017-2018

It’s that time of year! Our homeschool plan is finalized and submitted to our local school district. Right now, my tentative plan is to start school by August 23. I think. We may start math earlier than that. In our homeschool this year, we have Lael (11th grade), Alyssa (9th grade), Lauren (5th grade), and Addie (2nd grade).

 

Here’s the plan –

Proverbs 31 and Side Hustles

She considers a field and buys it;
    out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.
She sets about her work vigorously;
    her arms are strong for her tasks.
She sees that her trading is profitable,
    and her lamp does not go out at night.

Proverbs 31:16-18

Well, sort of. My lamp definitely goes out at night. But these verses bring me peace and vision for one of the things that keep me busy. And who knew I’d love it so much.

Books For Easter 2017

Am I the only one that still feels like Easter should be a month away, if not more? Where did March go? But with just over a week left, it’s the perfect time to finish up your Easter shopping with some books. We all want our kids to learn more about following Jesus, so why not place a book in their Easter baskets with that candy?

I’ve got one book recommendation for each age group – preschoolers, early readers, tweens, and teens. If you have a girl in your life, these books are great additions to their book collection. Fresh new books, reading outside in the sunshine – perfection. (Now we just need sun here in Northern New York!)

When Words Hurt

I was picking up my daughter from the nursery at church. The worker seemed annoyed, so I asked if everything went alright. She started by telling me briefly about her job, but I can’t remember what she said because for a moment I was so confused by her words. But then came the rest of her explanation –

If you spent less time trying to teach her to read at 3, and more time disciplining her then she wouldn’t be so difficult to handle.

I was crushed.

What she didn’t know is that I wasn’t trying to teach my daughter to read at all. She just was picking up books and watching Sesame Street. Didn’t know that I was exhausted because it seemed all I did was discipline and direct this little ball of energy. She didn’t know that I was struggling with how to train her to listen to me, when all this little one wanted to to was talk and move and ask questions. so many questions. This tired nursery worker just assumed something, based on the 40 minutes she spent with my precocious toddler and judged my parenting.

So how do you respond to such a statement?
